Robert Richard Brandel Obituary
July 14, 1929 - September 14, 2015 Beloved brother, husband, father, granddaddy, uncle, cousin and friend, Bob Brandel, passed away peacefully at the age of 86 on September 14, 2015. Bob (also known as "the King") was born in Los Angeles to Leila and Charles Brandel, and immediately started entertaining people. Stationed in Oklahoma with the US Air Force, he met the love of his life, Pat. He always said 1953 was a great year because he made two lifelong decisions: to marry Patty Lee and begin an enduring and successful career with the State Compensation Insurance Fund. There he made cherished friends. Soon his precious daughter, Christie, was born. He loved Southern California, Hawaii, the USC Trojans, every animal, golf, gambling, music, dancing, the sound of his own voice, family, and especially his grandsons. He is survived by his wife Pat, his daughter Christie and her husband Odin Benitez, his grandsons Aidan and Sean, his sister Norma, and his nephews Tom Mace and Dave Mace, and their families.
